Cardmaker's Dilemma

I need to make a (belated) anniversary card for my friends Rose and Gary, a sympathy card for my friend Adrienne whose mother passed away, and another for a member of our Congregation whose daughter died last week. But what did i do? I made two holiday cards! I've been cruising through assorted blogs and came on this really pretty and simple card on Tandra's blog .

Here's her card

She used the gorgeous new Bella Rosa designer paper (Stampin' Up! of course) and not only do i have this paper, i've also got the stamp set and the ribbon. Usually i look at someone else's card and figure out how to simplify it enough to make it. This time i thought maybe i could gussy it up a bit, so i used the new striped twill ribbon and two different holiday greetings with sponged edges and Kiwi Kiss paper behind them, popped up on dimensionals. This first one uses a really beautiful stamp for the sentiment, but it was too big to fit in the medium oval punch, so i had to punch it out with the wide punch and then make do with two green ovals to imitate a larger oval behind it

The second one i used a smaller greeting so i could punch it out with the medium oval and mount it on a large green oval.
